Grizzlies Radio Network Ready For 2014

Baseball is back in MLB and before we know it Grizzlies baseball will be back as well. Thanks for checking in to I hope you enjoy today's blog post.

Monday was a big day on the radio side of things as the Grizzlies signed a deal with 590 AM KFNS in St. Louis to be the flagship station on the Grizzlies Radio Network. 1400 AM KJFF in Festus, MO will serve as the Affiliate station, teaming up with KFNS to form the Radio Network.


This is an exciting deal for us as 590 moves back to all-sports. Grizzlies games have been on 590, one way or another, since 2010. Last year 590 aired weekend games only. We're thrilled to have them on board for all games this season.

Our first broadcast will be the final home Exhibition game on May 10th when the Grizzlies welcome in the Wichita Wingnuts of the American Association. Click the link below for the entire 2014 Grizzlies Broadcast Schedule.


I'm happy to welcome Sam Levitt to the broadcast team for the upcoming season. The recent Northwestern grad will be the No.2 broadcaster, Media Relations assistant and GTV talent for the upcoming season. He will be on the air with me for all home games and select road contests. Sam most recently spent two seasons as a play-by-play broadcaster in the Cape Cod League. While at Northwestern he broadcasted nearly a dozen different B1G sports and served as Sports Director of WNUR-FM. Sam grew up just outside of New York City.

Sam will be a great addition to our Broadcast team. He's an extremely talented young broadcaster who I feel will excel from the start. He's very advanced for his age and I'm going to have him doing the middle innings play-by-play from day one.

In case you missed it, I sat down with Grizzlies 8th year manager Phil Warren yesterday for the April Manager's Chat. Listen to the entire INT at the link below.


Hope you enjoy the games this season. Sam and I are looking forward to bringing them to you.

  Go Grizzlies!
